They were not good on puck lines going 38-44 (-289 loss). More of their games came in under (46) than went over (34). They are favored in their upcoming game vs the Montreal Canadiens.

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record is better than it should be. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is +0.2 (includes playoff games) which ranks #14 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #9. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #8 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #13 in road games.
